Newest Purse and Loving It

July 23, 2018

Lily Jade was so kind as to send over a complimentary purse. YET, as always, all views are my own (and my fierce competitors for the bag: my girls wearing Whole Parenting Goods). I am a sucker for a good bag, one that can really tote and haul. Long gone are my days of dainty, cute purses. Nope, I need something that’s a workhorse and can handle spills, spits, and squirts. But I also really don’t love the plasticky-diaper bags. I had a few the first few years of babies and always felt like they were designed by some dude out to make me look as rookie mom as possible. Years ago I met the founders of Lily Jade at a blogging conference: they were just as nice as their company seems! Such kind and lovely creative folks, parents themselves who really got it.

The inside organizer means I’m not fishing forever for wipes or a dry pair of pants. The outside pockets mean I can grab my keys easily.

Should I tell you that I’m putting my  hand-me-down Alma in blue monogram Louis Vuitton in the closet and using this instead? Should I tell you it holds everything like Mary Poppins’ bag? Maybe part of that is the organizer that sneaks inside. No more lost anything. You will not believe how many more things you can squeeze into your purse with the help of this “baby bag.” Should I tell you you can hold it like I am here, or with a single shoulder strap, or like a backpack? Should I tell you I now feel like part of a secret club whose members can joyfully wink at one another and give a head nod? I’m just going to let the pics say it all. Go shop their store. Now. This model is on sale for a limited time. $40 off! We bought my mom this one. Because grandmas need stylish purse bags too! And because they’re so super sweet, they’re running a giveaway of THREE of my bandit bibs on their instagram account. Run to it! Oh, look, I got dressed! (Don’t worry, it was momentary.)…
